Use Immunization Registries to Optimize Vaccinations
Immunization registries are getting a lot more attention...as pharmacies prepare for possible COVID-19 vaccines.
Think of registries, or immunization information systems (IISs), as similar to prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs).
IISs are confidential online databases that consolidate vaccine records. They can be used to look up patient histories...identify vaccine gaps...and may even help with reminders for follow-up doses.
